Natalia from Ma Nouvelle Mode asked us to put together a fashion post on our style. I thought about it, looked through my closet, and became thoroughly confused.
I know I have a style, everyone has a style, those certain items of clothing they are drawn to, but for the life of me, I can’t seem to think of a name for my style. I know it’s Comfortable, Casual, and Colorful, but that’s about it.
I don’t like fussy clothes, the kind that require you to wear belts and Spanx. In fact, I just don’t do Spanx. Honestly, it’s like pouring all of my pounds into sausage casing.
You have to do a dance that combines the Hokey-Pokey and break-dancing just to squish into the things. Who ever came up with that idea anyway? Surely it couldn’t have been a woman.
Anyhow, I draw the line at control-top pantyhose and I only wear those when absolutely necessary, which is right next to never.
So I like comfortable things. I know that.
I think all these outfits are a pretty good representation of my style, so if you can name it, please do.
Now on to What I Wore Wednesday with The Pleated Poppy.
I only have two outfit photos for you this week. My only excuse is that things have been super busy and I have felt less than stellar; however, I do have two photos, so that’s worth something. Right?
My photographer (FringeMan) obviously took a little poetic license with this super-fast clicking. I don’t know what I was doing, but you can only assume I am warming up for some pretty stealthy karate moves.
This dress is a $10 dollar dress from Walmart. It’s super comfortable, but showing wear. That doesn’t stop me from throwing it on though. The long-sleeve t-shirt is a hand me down and the leggings are GAP. Boots are Dr. Marten Becca Engineer boots. I get a lot of questions about these boots in real life. They are comfortable and they do have a wide calf.
This next outfit I wore for my mother.
Hey mom! Look familiar?
Just so you know, I’m pointing to my outfit and not my spleen.
My mom totally flipped-her-lid on me once when I was about ten years-old. We piled into a doctor’s office and I sat down and took off my coat. That’s when she noticed I was wearing purple corduroy pants and a red turtle neck. She thought this a poor fashion choice, so I’ve made it my life’s mission to rock purple and red any chance I get.
And yes, mom. I went out like this. To The Doctors!
Pants are from Kohl’s. I saw them on the clearance rack about a month ago and the t-shirt is from the Gap.
I’m wicked disappointed in the shirt. The armpits turned hot pink. I’m guessing it was some weird reaction to my deodorant, because I wasn’t even sweating. It was like twenty degrees outside and all I was wearing was a t-shirt and my jacket. Ya, not super happy. I emailed the company and they told me to return it for a refund. I’ve yet to get back to the mall.
That’s all folks!
What did you wear this week?
And better yet, tell me about your style. Do you have a name for it?
Do you even know what your style is?? Clearly I do not.
